First of all, I'd like to start out by asking if any of you have ever watched a soccer game? A real one? Yes, MLS games are fun, but when was the last time you watched a game that didn't include a "strike force" member? I applaud the MLS for creating such avid soccer junkies, but after reading some of your posts I seriously wonder as to what games you are watching... Next, I'd like to point out that I don't live in Boston so I don't get to watch the games in person, but a buddy of mine is on your team as well as a few other teams so I have that great mls package... Down to business...Fire Nicol? Are you crazy? He is the only thing keeping the Revolution in somewhat of a unit...who in the world could take the load of shiat (not always, but with injuries etc.) and make a winning team? Sampson? Di Cicco? Even Arena? In addition, Nicol has played in the soccer home land and knows more about soccer than all of you put together...maybe if the MLS weren't forcing him to start or play certain players and all players came to all practices then he could put out a squad that resembles a team... About the dispersal draft and players...when you guys go on and on about, who exactly was on the team that was an impact player? Serna is a whining baby that obviously wants out, update buddy, you aren't going to Europe...if anyone was interested you would have left long ago. Chacon is old, lazy and isn't willing to put in any type of work...players like Etcheverry, Valderama, and even Preki have earned the right to stand around and spray balls. You on the other hand don't do anything with the ball when you get it and haven't won a tackle in five years. Diallo...what a piece of work...bad players seem to find their way to NY and somehow all of them put together ends up working. Rooney, though a great guy that has put his time in, the end of the rainbow has come. Cullen and Heaps are just role players...you need hard working nitty, gritties...at least they don't think they are good, and by the way whoever complained about Clavijo picking him up, he does have that illusive "Rookie MVP" title under his belt...which once again gets back to my first point of the MLS being the AYSO of World Soccer. It will get there, but in the mean time we have to watch players like Wolde Harris, who give him credit, back in the day was pretty exciting. Wolde couldn't score a goal if his life depended on it. Downing, hmm, he was one of those brilliant kids who was on every youth national team known to mankind, had a less than memorable college career, and now is making progress toward a short MLS one. GK wise, Brown when healthy seems to be a pretty BIG force, Sommer looks like his sight is blurring with age. Llamosa is pretty solid and could really settle things if he gets healthy and has a few young guys to run for him. Pierce, temperamental, but good, as Franchino is fairly solid although he and Heaps hit balls into the forwards blindly, at all heights, not to the correct food of the forwards, and at some points the forwards are lucky to even get a knick on it. Fuller, mind hasn't been quite made up on him, somedays he looks to be a McBridesque target player, he gets Twellman in dangerous positions pretty often, he works hard, wins the air balls and gets fouled a lot, although not the quickest bird, but if his first goal doesn't come soon, the Wolde bug might be biting. Ralston, hands down is the best player out there. Great worker, great dribbler, he should be the captain. Twellman, while I'm going to go out on a limb and make a few enemies (not that I haven't already), but Twellman is a goal scorer. That's it. He will fade in and out of the game, not do anything for 90 min. and then score. Which is fine and brilliant for all intants and purposes, but all you thinking he is the next Michael Owen or Crespo, you are kidding yourselves. He isn't going to Europe and if he does he will be coming back very soon. He barely can keep the ball as a target player, and since his scoring streak has attempted to finish every ball or take someone on every time he gets within 25 yds. He is good, but he thinks he is too good, and when he gets in fights with players of his own team telling them they are old and sh--ty, ie, Rooney, and it is audible to the audience at home, I wonder if his head hasn't gotten a little too big. Oh, and hilarious that the little bro gets to train with them, someone asked if he will come play in New England...sure, maybe after he wins a starting spot at Stanford. The kid barely played last year. Lastly, the uni's are ugly as all hell. Your stadium is nice though. Don't get me wrong, I am a rev fan, but I think the fans are attempting to blame the wrong things for the losses. Who knows, can't wait to see the response...sorry about the length.
